Manchin and Sinema are hurting their party more than any Republican ever could

From CNN | Opinion by Lincoln Mitchell

After a failed, all-day scramble to get the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed on Thursday, President Joe Biden's legislative agenda is in jeopardy for the moment. Not so much because of the unavoidable strong Republican opposition but because of a few congressional Democrats who refuse to support the legislation unless it is adjusted to their precise liking. Now, it's been reported that there is a new $2.1 trillion compromise being floated around in Washington, but the division is so clear that the new figure may not be enough to get the needed votes.

In some respects, this may seem like a normal part of the legislative process, but it is no longer that simple.
